With passionate St. Louis Cardinals fans and loyal Kansas City Royals fans in one state, Missourians love them some baseball.

And we’ve got the emoji to prove it.

According to a study by SwiftKey, a U.K. tech firm, Missouri’s most-used emoji is the baseball.

We can’t say we’re surprised.

Other popular emoji in the Show Me State include the peace sign and a pair of scissors.

We’re not quite sure what that says about us.

Kansas, on the other hand, uses the camera emoji the most, followed by a tree and an envelope with a heart.

The study gathered data from 1.5 billion emoji in 16 different languages to determine which states used which emoji mosr frequently.

Other interesting finds: Texas uses the grape emoji the most, while Nebraska uses the snail and Oklahoma uses a ghost.
